Going on a highway without toll ticket

Last Tuesday, it was indeed a memorable day in my driving life. I was on the way to Taiping from UTP, therefore I had to exit to the highway through the Jelapang toll..As some of you all might have already know, the highway was reconstructed and toll booths were relocated..There was two booths at the Jelapang exit before this, and they were not functioning as far as I knew..These booths have been redundant for years...

That day, as I drove, I thought it didnt function as well..The pole was high up, so I decided to drove straight all the way hoping for the ticket booth to be at another site. However, as I passed, I heard someone yelling at me, but I just kept pressing the accelerator thinking it was someone else across the road..Feeling weird and see no ticket booths after that, I begin to feel "kan cheong"...Cham, how and what to explain when I exit at Taiping later??

So after few minutes of thinking, decided to call PLUS and confess my sins..haha..They were shocked listening to my case, and thank God, didnt fine me..I just needed to explain at Taiping booth and pay the normal price..Lesson learned..

So, you dont need a SMART Tag or Touch n Go in future..You can just GO and PASS the booth by paying the same price..saves ur time..time reduction, cost efficient!Hahahaha

My friend kena one time blur case also. Not with toll but rather with petrol station. Paid for the petrol. Forgot to pump petrol and went home. The next morning she was puzzled why the petrol so low and the door opened.
